History of whisky

We are producing a short history of whiskey for online and need 3 animations to help tell the story. We have already produced a ale video and I have attached one animation from this and we would like the animation to look similar in style. Also we would like a quick animation title sequence called 'A taste of Britain. and too include whisky, ale, gin and tea. Below is the brief for the cartoon

1. 'Whisky has been distilled in Scotland since the 15th century and the name comes from – and I think I’m saying this right - ‘Usquebaugh’ - the Gaelic translation of aqua vitae or ‘water of life’. This makes sense because it was historically made by monks for medicinal purposes.'


Monk in monastery sitting at desk with medieval clipboard, pouring shots of whisky to three patients lining up – one spotted from smallpox, one shaking from palsy and one coughing from colic. Could alternatively show them lying on beds with illnesses written on boards at end of [url removed, login to view] wake up with hangovers!

2. ‘Back in the 18th and early 19thth century, heavy taxes on spirits forced many whisky producers underground. Thousands of illicit stills sprang up in the hidden pockets of Scotland’s hills and forests, with at least 18 stills operating in this very area. To avoid being caught by Excise officers the smugglers even devised clever warning signals so not to get caught.


Scottish heather clad and forested hills at night. On right and left hand sides there are two more prominent hills, on top of which we see amusingly sneaky whisky smugglers (wearing traditional Highland bonnet at a jaunty angle, tartan kilts, blouses, fashion of the era), hiding near their barrels of whisky. An Excise officer or two appear on horses, looking around to catch them. As they get closer to one, the smuggler furthest away from the officers sends a warning signal to the other by sending up a small flare or smoke signal. This makes the smuggler drag his barrel behind a tree or cover it with something and hide himself. The officer wanders away towards the other smuggler and this time he is warned in the same way. The officers look around, confused, lift their shoulders to suggest ‘I give up’ then depart. Then, at the same time the smugglers each reappear with their barrels, fill and lift up a cup of whisky. At this point, from out behind the trees and bushes surrounding, a host of formerly unseen Scotsmen (also illegal distillers and smugglers) stick their heads/arms/bodies out with their own whisky filled glass and all give a joyous ‘Hey!’ or ‘Here's tae ye!’ or ‘Slainte’ in unison. 20secs

3. After all, prohibition, wars, revolutions and economic disasters have come and gone and single malt whisky still remains. I’ll drink to that!


Monk, Smuggler and Guard all standing around a whiskey barrel all say Here’s tea ye and raise their glass of whiskey. 10secs
